Well he probably wants to spend his money on the newest generation of cards.. not the previous generation 9800 Pro, or the generation before that, the 9600 Pro.

if you want a 9600 get the sapphire 9600xt ultimate edition, its probably the best non-OC'ed 9600 you can get, but again, you could get a 6600gt, which is probably your best bet, Aopen makes a pretty good one that they sell for about 194 US dollars on newegg

BFG also has huge heatsinks that take up to many slots on my mobo, at least for the 6800 series anyway... I like the slimline look of MSI, and Aopen.

I think it is better then MSI (cooling is better). I never said MSI was terrible or fails. It is good. But BFG is better.
